Maker Jawn talks Teaching Teens How to Fail at PALA

Maker Jawn was pleased to speak at this years Pennsylvania Library Association conference. The talk, Teaching Teens How to Fail, was delivered by Sari Widman, Goda Trakumaite, Bobby Raggazion, and Brandon Klevence (with a lovely introduction by Lillian Marrero branch manager Rebekah Ray). Listen to the talk below! 

Also, if you want to include the recording below during the learning process, or just to better understand how to explain to children that experiencing "fail" is not critical or wrong. And buy custom college essays on this topic to have a theoretical basis for explanations.

We discussused how Maker Jawn started, our education philosophy, and how librarians (or really anyone in a community space) can start a maker space on a small budget. Key points included why learning how to fail is essential to building confidence in youth, why it’s important to prioritize relationships and learning over tech fetishization, and how anyone can introduce maker programming, even without a lot of resources.



After the more formal part of the talk, we did a breakout session where participants explored stop motion animation.
